Speakers Australia and its principal Peter Physick have provided the most convenient and professional service we have encountered.

In over 25 years of our Institute providing members with current, thought provoking and topical issue speakers for our conferences and forums, we have come to rely on the outstanding judgement of Peter and Speakers Australia.

Whether it be entertainers for a broad audience or the most challenging conference topic, Speakers Australia has never failed to deliver. We at the AMInstitute are faced with the dilemma of providing our delegates at conferences with new and exciting presenters year after year and as many of our delegates attend each year, we need presenters and entertainers with new and fresh material.

This challenge has been made obsolete by Speakers Australia as they have taken the time to know our business, our target audience and our history………

The service we received from Speakers Australia has been exemplary from the beginning. Peter Physick and his team worked very hard to ensure that Keith Scott was available to MC our event under what could be described as challenging logistical circumstances given the time constraints we were faced with.

We would highly recommend Peter and his company Speakers Australia.
David Carter / AgriPlex Group Pty Ltd

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Peter Physick at Speakers Australia since the year 2000 and have never been let down by his recommendations. I tell Peter the type of speaker or act that we require and he supplies a number of names and CV's of the speakers or acts which fit our requirements. It is as simple as that.

Peter’s professional attitude and friendly manner makes it an absolute pleasure to deal with him. I can not recommend him highly enough to any one or to an organisation which needs help in arranging, organising or advising on the best fit for their special event.

Client List
Steve Tighe is one of Australia’s most compelling speakers on the future and innovation.
Steve is recognised for his thought-provoking observations on today’s society, and his ability to express key insights about the future in an engaging and entertaining fashion.

Renowned for his clever use of metaphors, images and case studies, Steve takes his audience on a virtual journey into the future, whilst alerting them to the drivers of future change and the implications for their business.

Steve's presentations focus on Australia's evolving values and emerging trends and how these changes are re-shaping every aspect of our lifestyles including commuting, housing, employment, consumption and the cities we choose to live in!


A practising futurist, Steve is the former Foresight Manager at Foster’s and has worked with some of Australia’s leading companies, looking at the future of their industry and the opportunities for their business. He has a Masters in Strategic Foresight from Swinburne University and has completed the Oxford Scenarios Programme at Oxford University.

With this unique combination of corporate and academic foresight experience, Steve de-mystifies the challenges of the future and provides his audience with genuine tools for improving their business performance.  Steve is an international speaker on the future and tailors each of his presentations to the specific needs of his audience.

“Steve Tighe is one of those rare presenters who take you on an innovation journey - darting you into the past and then back to the future. His masterful delivery of insights sneaks up on you, nudging you to wake up to finally see the obvious. If you're a business leader who wants to know what's going on, or to recognise the signals before they become a trend, then Steve’s presentation is a must.” 
Tony Chadwick - Former Chairman Logan Office of Economic Development, Co Founder - Start Innovation Centre 

“Steve’s ability to take a subject as broad as the evolution of Australian society, and how those changes can be related to the delivery of products and services in the future was amazing.”
Easts Leagues Club, Michael Wilkins, General Manager Club operations  

“Steve captivated our audience and had their full attention from beginning to end. His dynamic presentation style assured our delegates they were in the right place at the right time.” 
Emma Carstens, Local Government Association of Queensland  

“Steve’s presentation to the Melbourne Business Awards breakfast was just brilliant. He totally engaged the audience of predominately small to medium sized manufacturers with his thought provoking analysis of what the future might hold. His knowledge and understanding of foresight and innovation gave him enormous credibility with the audience. His highly creative presentation was fast paced and humorous but with some very serious take home messages for the businesses in attendance. The feedback to the organising committee has been fantastic.” 
Suzanne Ferguson, Manager Economic Development, City of Kingston  

“Steve’s excellent presentation reinforced the importance of being systematic with our own marketing efforts. There can be no better advantage in business than to be in possession of valid foresight ahead of your competitors.”
Total Concept Projects, Richard Skarzynski, Managing Director  

“Steve Tighe’s unique and creative presentation provided the perfect closing to our Conference.Steve has a profound knowledge of Foresight and Innovation, and his methodology for anticipating change was eagerly embraced by all of the delegates.”
Peter Turnbull, Chief Executive Officer, Leagues Clubs Australia   

“Steve’s thoughtful and impactful presentation catapulted the NAB Community Partnership & Sponsorship team beyond the paradigm in which they operate today, to a future where customers and communities grapple with new ‘social epidemics’ and demand new terms of engagement with governments, organisations and brands. Steve creates a meaningful perspective on the future through considered inputs and a creative process.”
Kara Rodden, Director, Spot Innovation
